Something for the home entertainment buffs out there. Sanyo is showing off a super-short focused laser prototype projector that is capable of projecting a 100-inch 1080P picture from a mere 24-inches away. If you add on another 12 -inches you can gain an additional 5-inches of viewing area.


The new projector is so new it does not even have a name yet. Sanyo did let slip that this will have 7000 lumens. No price or release information was available at the time of writing.

Sanyo Shows off Prototype 100-inch 1080p Projector
Sanyo's had a knack for pumping out short-throw projectors, but its latest prototype unquestionably takes the cake. Debuting without so much as a model name, this here DLP beamer -- which, at 93- x 20- x 25-inches, easily doubles as a bench -- throws up a 100-inch 1080p image with just 24-inches of space between it and the wall. Better still, that can scale up to 150-inches by adding just another foot of breathing room -- and just to remind you, we're talking full 1,920 x 1,080 resolution here
